We went here for the Backstreet boys concert. The whole security and the crowd management was very well done. The food stalls were a bit on the steep side but I guess that is expected. We were quite far from the main stage, but they...More

Been to the Media City amphitheatre many times for concerts and events and it is a great outdoor venue. The ticketing/admission has improved tremendously over the last couple of years. Nice "pre-show" area with food and bars.

Visited this great concert venue to see Rudimental & Disclosure with my best mate who lives in Dubai. Great view of the show, not too packed & good acoustics. Brilliant night.
